When I first started this blog. I had absolutely no idea how much it would change my life. The support and help I recieved from you guys was amazing and because of all the positivity, I had motivation to become acne free! I dont remember the last time I looked in the mirror and hated what i saw! This isn't much of a blog, i would think of it as more of a "thank you/this is the end of my journey" blog. Looking back at my previous posts and seeing how much I've changed since then gives me such a s

Bad Haircut, To Match The Bad Skin

so before all of you judge me and tell me "I don’t know what you’re talking about you never had acne." trust me, I’ve been there. And it sucks. It made me want to yell, scream, cry, shout and every possible negative emotion out there and eventually I came to the realization that I would have to live with it. I just wanted to give you guys hope, even if I help one person with their self-confidence I’ll be doing what I originally wanted to do with this blog. So I’ve been on retin a micro for 219 d

Hey guys, so today i was doing a few things (haircut, shopping and what not) so while i was at the shoppers drug mart i was picking up a travel size avene thermal water to keep at school, the lady working asked about what i was using on my skin so i began to tell her. she told me i should try an exfoliant for my skin and i said no just because i thought it would be bad on my skin to over exfoliate... so while i was checking out the cashier was talking to me and telling me that im messing around

My Acne Story

Hi everyone so my name is Michael, I'm 15 years old from Canada and I suffer from nodular cystic acne.
